    use the obd-1 b16 ecu,and get the obd1 jumper harness from rywire....
    do some research while your at it,because you dont sound like you have a clue what to do,and starting projects without the know-how,absolutely sucks

    okay first of all do some research... i did almost 2 months of it before i started buying anything. get either a gsr or type r oil pump.. b16 ones are junk. but be careful on the gsr oil pump most of them are pretty much as a ls oil pump. whatever water pump u go with use that timing belt. but if u use a b16 one use a gsr timing belt. if u plan on being rev happy. swap out the ls rod bolts.. for arp.. its totally worth the 60 bucks. plus get rid of the ls pistons.. if ur going boost then it will be fine but not for extremely high boost.. but n/a get some b16, tyoe r, or ctr, gsr pistons are just like ls pistons, then i would rebuild the block. all new bearings and seals. get everything cleaned, honed etc. get the GE ls/vtec kit it will save u tons of time and money... takes like 20 min to instal.. real easy... if u need anymore help
    just ask me cuz im tired of typin right now...lol... but u should do some research it would help..

    ARP head studs (GSR), you can use the ls oil pump but it is highly recommended you upgrade to the gsr oil pump. 1996+ integra oil pumps are all the same part number whether itr or ls... gsr water pump (22-teeth), a gsr timing belt, new tensioner and the ls-vtec conversion kit. Go obd0-obd1 and have it tuned on crome or hondata. Big thing when ordering your ls-vtec kit, is letting them know your exact bore size so the HG (which is based off an ls), is modified not only for the new dowel pin locations and dowels, it also matches the bore of the cylinders.
